House Hunting

For those who don't know already, I'm making an official announcement. Joe and I are looking for a house! We got pre-approved about 2 weeks ago and the final approval has gone through and today we are taking our first trip out to view some homes.

I'm starting to feel all grown-up! We are looking for our first home together!! This is so exciting. I'm feeling so many emotions today -
major anxiety - for sure. I just know something could go wrong
nervousness - I bit a few of my nails!!!!
excitment - I might want to buy the first house we see
scared - are we really ready for this committment?
tired - apartment living is exhausting
loved - married life is grand and our future is so full!!!

Today is awesome...wish us luck! I hope to still have some nails by the end of today!

Day 4

Okay, I'm a nail bitter. Not the nervous, anxious or fidgety nail bitter - but a hard core, bite 'em 'til they bleed kind. And I know, its disgusting. Believe it or not it grosses me out when I stop and think about it. But I'm a nonchalant bitter and do it every day. I've been chewing on them for as long as I can remember. Have you ever seen Frodo's nails in LOTR?? Yeah, I'm close to that. Oh my gosh it its nasty.

With my recent goal of "New Things," I have decided to stop...hopefully forever. (oh yeah I have a "New Things" aura about me recently. Its a whole other blog, but I'm surrounding my self with new things and changing things about myself.) So yeah, I'm on Day 4 and going strong. I give myself a manicure everyday...mainly to keep up with my finger fetish, but in a more positive way. Clipped cuticles, filed nails and shiny clear coat. Things are lookin' good!

I actually think I'm going to be obsessed with them now.
They must look pretty!!
I'm hoping by this time next week, I'll actually have nails to file, rather than filing the skin down on top of the nail, to help it grow. Man, I'm so pathetic.

Yeah for pretty nails and healthy cuticles!!!
